Vigan: More Kalesa Tour Photos

We had a great time strolling around the streets of Heritage Village and Baluarte. To continue on, here are some photos taken during the latter part of our Vigan Kalesa Tour. Tourist spots include Pagburnayan, Bantay Bell Tower, St. Augustine Parish Church, St. Paul Cathedral.

Authentic Vigan Jars
Jars made by hand in the traditional laborious way of molding clay.

Bantay Belfry Tower
Love that massive red brick structure that stands proudly on a small hilltop. It's a famous setting of many action star legend Fernando Poe Jr's movies.

St. Paul Cathedral
Our day of stay in the province of Vigan is relatively not enough. There are so many historic places we've left unseen, especially the Paoay Church and my much anticipated encounter with the authentic Vigan empanada and bagnet which sadly did not happen. *sigh* It seems that we all wanted to comeback soon for a much longer sojourn, a staycation perhaps? But anyway, you may want to read my travel notes on our Vigan Kalesa Tour here
